I sold a company to Wind River (device management vendor, Rapid Logic) and have partnered with Intel on/off for 13+ years so I have a pretty well formed perspective on the deal, which I blogged about in: Closing the Book on Embedded: Intel buys Wind River http://bit.ly/2I9ks Excerpt: While some will spin it as Intel getting serious about software, or moving up the solutions stack, my guess is that the net out is a 1+1= <2 outcome (something that Intel factored into the price that they paid for the company). Check it out if interested. Mark

I believe that this could be a very good move for Intel and industry as a whole. Intel needs and has stated that they will be moving beyond their current markets of strength for growth. This is required as the market for the traditional expensive server and notebook is growing quite slowly. The new markets that will be expanding rapidly include MIDs, handhelds, DTV, set top boxes, IPTV, infrastructure, and the like. These markets could all benefit greatly by a cohesive strategy to enable new products and software that I believe this combination can offer.
